A Case of Acute Necrotizing Esophagitis.
Summary of "A Case of Acute Necrotizing Esophagitis."
Acute necrotizing esophagitis, which presents as a black esophagus on endoscopy, is a rare disorder. We report a case of a 48-year-old male with acute necrotizing esophagitis, associated with alcoholic hepatitis. He was admitted to our hospital because of hematemesis. On initial upper esophagogastroduodenoscopy, diffuse friable black colored mucosa at whole length of the esophagus was observed. After conservative treatment with proton-pump inhibitor, esophageal mucosal lesion was healed without complication.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
INFLAMMATION, acute or chronic, of the ESOPHAGUS caused by BACTERIA, chemicals, or TRAUMA.
Pancreatitis, Acute Necrotizing
A severe form of acute INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS characterized by one or more areas of NECROSIS in the pancreas with varying degree of involvement of the surrounding tissues or organ systems. Massive pancreatic necrosis may lead to DIABETES MELLITUS, and malabsorption.
Chronic ESOPHAGITIS characterized by esophageal mucosal EOSINOPHILIA. It is diagnosed when an increase in EOSINOPHILS are present over the entire esophagus. The reflux symptoms fail to respond to PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS treatment, unlike in GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE. The symptoms are associated with IgE-mediated hypersensitivity to food or inhalant allergens.
A syndrome characterized by acute OPTIC NEURITIS in combination with acute MYELITIS, TRANSVERSE. Demyelinating and/or necrotizing lesions form in one or both optic nerves and in the spinal cord. The onset of optic neuritis and myelitis may be simultaneous or separated by several months. (J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1996 Apr;60(4):382-387)
